#REVOLUTION: The Importance of Social Media For Activists

ME.REKA Makerspace

Not only has the internet changed the way we communicate, shop and search for information, it has opened up new possibilities for political engagements of activists. The one-to-many communication of classical mass media is gradually being replaced by a many-to-many communication method which uses blogs, networks and social media channels as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The benefit is obvious: costs are comparatively low and the reach is large. Divergent positions may be articulated and discussed with a wide audience. Otherwise isolated and marginalised people may find a platform and grow together.

In this one-hour workshop we will look at social media campaigns of international activists. Which social media channel suits you and your message? What are the characteristics of a successful campaign? This workshop is adressed to activists who plan to start their work on social media.”
